Yoga Asana of the Month (June)

It's that time again. Another yoga asana to soothe your yogic soul. This month is eagle pose (garudasana). The name of the video states this is an advanced yoga pose, but it's really not. I've been instructed in this pose in beginner classes. If you're having trouble balancing try focusing on one point and nothing else. As you become more comfortable in eagle, you can wrap your arms and legs at the same time (not legs first and then arms as in the video). Eagle pose will stretch out your ankles, calves and thighs. With continual practice eagle pose should also improve balance. Don't forget to do the other side too!
